No – it’s “Queen Zixi of Ix.” And it’s a story about a Magic Cloak, not some U.N. bureaucrat! That’s from an email from my brother-in-law, who darn well knows that L. Frank Baum’s story is delightful, and that everyone can and should get this great book, along with Volume Two of The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature and The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories, for only $29.95 (which includes free postage!) – part of NR’s now-raging 2-for-1 (or, really, 3-for-1) Winter Clearance sale. Order here.
And don’t forget, Super Bowl Sunday is also is The Gipper’s birthday. Celebrate by getting a copy of Tear Down This Wall, The Reagan Revolution: A National Review History. This is a wonderful and affordable “best of” collection of NR articles about – and by – “Dutch,” plus a few speeches (including some about his “favorite magazine”). It’s a must for every conservative’s family library. Go to your local store (Barnes and Noble have copies) and get one before they’re gone, or go to the B&N website and order it.
